    Default Tattoos while pregnant?

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone knows if it's safe to get a small tattoo while almost 6 months pregnant?

    See, my cat has been very unwell and we needed to have her put down today :-( I would like something small in her memory, just her name and today's date, would it be safe?

    From my knowledge, it's a No. There's risk of infection which can harm the baby. I would wait, it's not that long, only 3 month and get it done with no worry. Congrats on your pregnancy and sorry about your kitty cat xxxx

    Iv always wanted one myself but have been too chicken I guess.
    When I was pregnant with our second DH went to get one done. All of our names in a rainbow awwwww
    Anyway I just asked the guy about one for myself ... Not necessarily in my pregnant state.....and he took one look at my huge stomach and started talking about HIV and septacaemia etc etc. scary stuff!

    Thank you everyone. I now know I def should wait.
    Things are still numb for me at the moment I keep going to look for her, waiting for her meow, head butting my legs. She is my first pet. A long 10 years later she was just too ill and in a lot of pain. I honestly believe we done all we could for her but unfortunately at the end of the day this is best, now she is not suffering anymore and causing a ruckus in kitty heaven :'(
